About the writer...


José Maria dos Reis Pereira, better known by the pseudonym José Régio, was a Portuguese writer, poet, playwright, novelist, short story writer, historian, teacher, and painter.

José Régio is considered one of the main creators of modern Portuguese literature, and the main precursor of the presence movement. His varied collection of works addresses, among others, the conflicts between Man and God, good and evil, the artist and society and the self and others.


Some of his main works:

  • Poemas de Deus e do Diabo (1925);
  • O jogo da cabra cega (1934);
  • A velha casa (1945- 1960);
  • Há mais mundos (1962).


“The Man is so paradoxical that he often does not forgive others for the harm he has done to them.” - O jogo da cabra cega, José Régio.
